Supremes James Jebbia $10M Suit Against Married to the Mob

It’s not often you see lawyers in suits in streetwear shops, but this particular case has the potential to heat up very quickly. Late last month, the prolific brand Supreme has filed suit against Leah McSweeney’s Married To The Mob, claiming $10 million dollars in damages due to MTTM’s “Supreme Bitch” design. While the similarities behind the design are pretty obvious, what isn’t so clear is the timing of the case, which comes almost 10 years after it originally surfaced on the racks under the young fashion designer’s label. The MTTB t-shirt design originally was intended to help ignite the women’s skate-fashion world, but Supreme’s James Jebbia claims its use dilutes the brand while McSweeney believes this is more of a case of her free speech being “squashed” and is just the latest example of the hostility her brand has faced as the first women’s skatebrand “from Day 1.” You can read the entire court filing here and MTTM’s official response here. One way or another there’s going to be some heat around this case. Stay tuned.
